Travel from the Airport
If you are arriving by air, the easiest way to get to the college is by taxi. Taxis from the airport to the city centre cost approximately €25.
Busses will also take you into Dublin from the airport: Aircoach and 747 Airlink are each about €7, Dublinbus 16 and 41 are about €2.80 but take longer. You can also use the ticket machine outside the airport bus stop to get a 90min multi-journey ticket for €2.60. All of them will take you to O'Connell Street (recognizable by the Spire in the median). From there, the front gates of Trinity College are directly south, on the other side of the River Liffey. The Aircoach continues on to Grafton Street, just south of campus.
More detailed directions are available here.
